    Pros

    Growth potential of the business globally. Most recent acquistions have been good fits with the overall businesses we are in. Excellent overall culture, lots of people that have left for greener pastures end up returning because of the culture. 5 years in a row of bonus payouts. Competitive pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Inability to integrate acqusitions effectively. Lack of acknowledgment for job well done by non sales management staff. Because there has been so much growth so fast it is sometimes confusing how to get things done and it has become more beaureacratic as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Better recognition of all staff, not just sales, and include middle management. Very senior managemtn needs to be more visible to the randk and file, they are never really seen.
